Boomkat Product Review:
Eddie Russ's debut album 'Fresh Out' was recorded in Detroit in 1974 and released on the independent Jazz Masters label. Twenty years ago it also became the first release on the fledgling Soul Jazz imprint and this reissue commemorates the fact. It features Russ leading The Mixed Bag group of Detroit jazz players on a funky, frothy jazz-funk vibe with a loungin' appeal.
"Eddie Russ was an important figure to emerge from the vibrant underground jazz scene that thrived in Detroit in the early 1970s, existing in the cultural and economic desolation of the city after the departure of Motown in the late 1960s. This scene included the musical collective Tribe (including members Wendell Harrison, Marcus Belgrave, Phil Ranelin, Harold McKinney and Doug Hammond) and Kenny Cox’s Strata Records."
